Milorganite in Maine?

I can't seem to be able to purchase Milorganite in Maine via Walmart, Depot, Lowe's, etc. Is Milorganite banned in Maine? Does anyone live in Maine and get Milorganite?

Thanks

Try using the store locator. It appears that many Agway stores in Maine carry it.

Bangor Lowe's seems to have it.

What end of Maine are you on?

Thanks guys I found some at my local True Value Hardware. I got a 36 lb bag and threw it down on setting 11 on my spreader. I don't know if I did it right, but I just wanted to get some stuff into the soil. I don't think anyone has ever fertilized or limed this yard. I watered it in after applying it, although it says you don't have to.

Hopefully all goes well. My lawn looks good and green, but of course it's not a chemical lawn so it's not perfect and has quite a few weeds here and there, but I've been plucking them out over the summer and adding lots of new grass.

I'm gonna get another bag and hit the back yard which is bigger, but I think I'll dial the setting back a little lol

Now I've got swarms of flies (the green shiny ones) all around my front yard. Is this normal with Milorganite?

In case you didn't know....

....IIRC..that stuff is actually the dried and processed by-product of a cities sewage system. I forget which one but I use it all the time and it really does work.
